I have written about how every single experience and relationship in your past has shaped you. You are the sum total of al of that. There is not such thing as an insignificant event or experience in your past. Every relationship leaves a mark.
Having a Heroes also has an impact. Your Heroes represent the sum total of everything that you want to be. Why else would they be your Hero. It could be a comic book character or your dad. They represent something that you would want to be like sometime.
Would you have a Hero that wasn’t as good as you? If you do, you should be pick new Heroes.
